FILEMAKER HOSTING

Generally, hosting your Filemaker db has a few drawbacks inherent in putting your files on a computer with other clients of your vendor.  You're unlikely to be able to be able to run plug-ins on the server or to have unfettered access to the schedule of scripts and server configuration.  That's the downside… the upside has everything to do with $30 a month and being able to call someone *else* with problems related to the server.

Point in Space hostinghttp://www.pointinspace.com/    Point in Space allows you to upload your files to their server, but you'll have to name your files with your assigned prefix.   In my case, I have to add an "HAG" to the beginning of my filenames.  Merely annoying to me, but it may be a real turnoff to someone with more OCD to deal with.

Triple-Eight hosting http://www.triple8.net/       My own experience with Triple 8 makes them a company I wouldn't use again; but I've heard from people who like them… 

WorldCloud http://www.worldcloud.com  My experience shows their service to be unreliable.  Found the error "Database Not Available" about 10 times too many.
